How to prepare best Four Cheese Pizza Recipe? Although there are many variations of this pizza parlor favorite, here’s my favorite, with a little roasted garlic to help tone down the heaviness of all that cheese. If you’d like to come up with your own combination of four cheeses, keep this in mind: at least two of them should be semi firm cheeses like Cheddar or Monterey Jack; at least one should be a hard cheese like Parmigiano Reggiano or Grana Padano; and none should be a soft cheese like ricotta or goat cheese. Look for roasted garlic cloves at the salad or deli bar of your local supermarket. Ingredients and directions:

With a pizza stone. Preheat the stone in the oven at 425°F for 30 to 45 minutes; or preheat the stone on a gas grill at medium, indirect heat (about 425°F) for 30 to 45 minutes; or build an indirect, medium- heat fire in a charcoal grill and preheat the stone for the same amount of time.

Fresh dough on a pizza stone. Dust a pizza peel lightly with cornmeal, then set the dough at its center. Start dimpling the dough, pressing into it with your fingertips as you stretch it slightly, until it’s a thick, flattened circle with lots of little ridges. Pick it up by the edge and slowly rotate and stretch the circle until it’s about 14 inches in diameter. Set it floured side down on the peel.
Fresh dough on a pizza tray or a large baking sheet. Grease either lightly with some olive oil on a paper towel. Lay the dough on the tray or baking sheet and dimple the dough with your fingertips until it’s a flattened circle then pull and press it until it forms a 14- inch circle on the pizza tray or an irregular rectangle, about 12 inches long by 7 inches wide, on the baking sheet.
